Budapest the capital of dental tourism
The principle behind dental tourism is all about looking for dental treatment outside your local healthcare service. Since EU expansion, Hungary has become the hot spot for dental tourism. In the past few years dental tourists visiting Budapest from the Republic of Ireland and the U.K have boomed. However don't be under the illusion that dentistry in Hungary is a new thing. Even before E.U expansion dental tourism was a thriving business with many of the clients coming from Austria and Germany to make massive savings, because of this the town of Mosonmagyarovar in Hungary near Austria has the highest concentration of dentists in the world.
Dentistry and dental care as a part of it are successful provinces of the Hungarian health services.
Over the past decade Hungarian dentists possess 40% in Europe’s and 10 % in the world’s dental tourism.
One more essential component for this success is that we offer world class facilities and latest dental technology at far the cheapest prices.
Within the whole European Union , in Hungary a traveller has only to pay one fifth to one tenth of the Union’s average costs because, the dental team’s costs are much lower in this country.
Budapest has become a very attractive destination for dental tourism. The reason why you should opt for our expert dental treatment is because we have access to low-cost yet high-quality service. Dentists in Hungary are renowned for their international accreditations as well as membership of international organisations. Hungary boasts one of the best dental universities in the world with students from all over the world competing to get a place at the Semmelweis OrvostudomÃ¡nyi Egyetem (Faculty of Dentistry of SOTE Medical University of Budapest, Hungary). You could argue that If you want to become the best lawyer you study at Harvard in America, if you want to become the best physician you study at Cambridge in England, if you want to become the best dentist then you study at Semmelweis Orvostudományi Egyetem. All the dentists that BHMS employ have graduated from the Semmelweis Orvostudományi Egyetem.
